Teaching a beginning crochet class

I’m happy to be teaching a beginning crochet class at Knit 1 in Chicago starting on Saturday February 25, 2012 10:00 am. If you have always wanted to try crochet now is the time! The class will explain all of the basics and the class project will be a cowl.

The example above is a very bulky weight version of my Chi-Town Crochet Cowl using Brown Sheep Burly Spun yarn.

And, you have options such as making the cowl a moebius.

Or, you could make one using a worsted weight or bulky weight yarn.

If you’re not into cowls this could also be made as a skinny scarf, or a regular sized scarf.

You could make this pattern with a self-striping yarn or variegated yarn. Knit 1 has many beautiful yarns to choose from.

If you’re interested in learning crochet while having a bit of fun, I invite you to join the class. Contact Knit 1 to reserve a space.

    In the top picture it looks as if the cowl does not have the ends sewn together, is that a modification from the pattern? It looks to be fasted with a button instead. I would like to make that version of the cowl, but the pattern instructions indicate to sew the two ends of the cowl together. Any information would be helpful. I have some bulky yarn I’d love to use for this project.

      The bulky version was added for the class I will be teaching. If you want to add a button just find a large button that will fit through the eyelet-like holes made by the stitch pattern. It takes a bigger button than you would think to go through and stay so take your finished cowl to try any buttons out on. Instead of sewing the ends of the cowl together, sew the button to one end and use one of the eyelets in the other end for a button hole. You’ll have to try it on to see where to place the button, placement will vary depending on how long you have made your cowl.
